dc.description.abstractWe present a semantic technology-based approach to emerging monitoring systems based on our linked data approach in the Tetherless World Constellation Semantic Ecology and Environment Portal (SemantEco). Our integration scheme uses an upper level monitoring ontology and mid-level monitoring-relevant domain ontologies. The initial domain ontologies focus on water and air quality. We then integrate domain data from different authoritative sources and multiple regulation ontologies (capturing federal as well as state guidelines) to enable pollution detection and monitoring. An OWL-based reasoning scheme identifies pollution events relative to user chosen regulations. Our approach captures and leverages provenance to enable transparency. In addition, SemantEco features provenance-based facet generation, query answering, and validation over the integrated data via SPARQL. We introduce the general SemantEco approach, describe the implementation which has been built out substantially in the water domain creating the SemantAqua portal, and highlight some of the potential impacts for the future of semantically-enabled monitoring systems.
